Work on the 2024 Washburn August Festival has begun. The Festival Committee hopes that AugFest ‘24 will be even better than in past years. However, last year’s festival encountered a 20% shortfall in funding that required the Rotary Club of Washburn to infuse more than $3,000 of funds dedicated to public service projects into the Committee to cover the shortfall.
This is not sustainable. The Festival Committee receives most of its funding from donations. Less than 25% of funding comes from tax dollars. If the festival is to continue, those of us who enjoy the homecoming atmosphere of August Festival will need to step up to support the event.
The Rotary Club of Washburn will present a dinner theater and hopefully a dessert auction on March 23 to raise funds for AugFest ’24. We are requesting financial and physical assistance from those entities who benefit from the festival to make this happen. We need help providing a meal, wait staff, desserts, set creation, etc. Contact any Rotarian to get involved. We want this to be a community event, much like the festival.
For those who “live away” and cannot attend the dinner theater, yet look forward to returning to Washburn in late August, we humbly request your generous donation. Your credit card donation can be easily made by visiting www.washburnrotary.org and clicking on August Festival. 100% of your donation will go to the festival. Rotary Club will absorb the website transaction fee on our end.
Your support is not only needed but will help ensure that AugFest ’24 becomes a reality. Please
contact any Rotarian or reach out to us at washburnrotary@gmail.com.
